Poverty too high says head of Trinidad's c bank

TRINIDAD - The governor of the Central Bank of Trinidad and Tobago, Ewart Williams, says while the country has experienced economic growth over the last eight years, not enough had been done to improve the quality of life for its citizens.

"Unemployment remains unacceptably high, the quality of health and housing for large sections of the population is grossly inadequate, as is our education system," Williams said.

"Clearly we are too resource rich to have such high levels of poverty," he added.
